Weekend College students are required to attend an Orientation prior to the start of classes.

During Orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet other Weekend College students and discuss strategies that will assist you throughout your studies in Weekend College. You’ll learn ways to help maintain the balance between home, work and school. What additional resources are available to you as a Lakeland student? Orientation will familiarize you with addition resources such as the library and tutoring and how they can help you succeed in school. Most importantly, during Orientation, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with students just like you and start to form the bonds that will remain long after graduation.

Orientations are held during the week prior to the start of the fall and spring semesters.
